Camp Hobé is a special summer camp designed for children with cancer and their siblings, who are often forgotten in the cancer experience. Camp Hobé gives kids the opportunity to participate in camp activities just like healthy children whose families are not affected by cancer. The camp program provides medical and psychosocial supervision to ensure children are safe both mentally and physically during camp.
Camp dates for 2017 are available now!
If you or someone you know is going through cancer treatment, be sure to check out Happy Chemo! (an Oxymoron on a mission) for information, inspiration, discounted health care and more!

German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County has been active with iGive for 10 years now, and what a story they have! Over 600 iGive members support this worthy Cause, and they have earned over $7,000 in Donations. Maria D., iGive member and Executive Director of the rescue, dropped us a note about their mission.
“German Shepherd Rescue of OC is dedicated to rescuing, rehoming, and rehabilitating German Shepherd dogs that have no where else to turn. We are operated by volunteers and we receive no government funding. Currently, we have more than 90 homeless shepherds depending on us for their care and comfort needs. Funds are desperately needed to pay for boarding costs, veterinary care, spaying and neutering, vaccines, microchips and basic supplies. In addition to funds, we always need donations of pet food, dog toys, quality treats, bleach and cleaning supplies. Dogs come to us from desperate situations, such as death of an owner, abandonment by loved ones, severe illness or injury that owners are not prepared to manage, as well as from public shelters throughout So California. Each year, we successfully rehome more than 400 German Shepherds in permanent, loving homes.”
If you live in the area, check out upcoming events to see how you can make a difference in the lives of these dogs, too!
Thanks Maria, for ALL you do on behalf of your Cause!
